A couple days ago a friend called me up and asked if I wanted his four chickens. They have a smallish backyard and as the weather has started warming up, he and his family are starting to get an idea of what chicken poop really smells like. Couple that with the fact they have a newborn and, well, the chickens have to go. Now.
Guess what we've spent the weekend working on?
The coop is almost done, but we'll have to stick the chickens in a temporary home for a few more days. But hey, I got to learn how to use a jigsaw! That was wicked fun. I have to get back out there, so in the meantime, here are some pictures for you to enjoy:
I don't have any photos of Mark putting together the coop, but here I am drilling the holes for the jigsaw blade. It gets pretty warm here and we want lots of ventilation for the coop. We'll paint as well.
Off to keep working on the thing!
